Everybody wants a perfect and youthful skin, and people are willing to try absolutely anything and everything to get that. You and I are no different, it does not matter how tight our schedule is, we can skip meals but not our beauty routines. Apparently, the weirder it gets, the healthier and beneficial it is for your skin. So, hold on to your seats, ladies and gentlemen because we are about to take an extremely peculiar, disgusting, astonishing, bizarre and jaw-dropping ride into a world of odd skin care products that can boost your skin.
Let us know if you have or would ever dare to try any of these.
If we ask you, your favourite animals, you would probably comes up with all the big and glorious animal names. But how many of you would pick “snails”. Just few, we are guessing. This often forgotten and tiny little being, however can be utterly useful for your skin. Snail mucus face creams are known for their amazing ability to make your skin look young again.
If you are a continuous reader of beauty blogs, then this news would not come as a surprise for you. This snail mucus is widely used in many, if not almost all Korean beauty products. You could find serums containing as much as 96% of snails mucus in them. This miraculous product can boost the production of collagen in your skin and will also help in healing the damaged or harmed skin cells, which will further give you a radiant and healthy skin.
A red lipstick could Elevate your look to another level. Most of us girls really prefer red lipstick over any other dark pigmented colour because c’mon, it’s classy. But did you know that most of your favourite red lipsticks have beetle juice in them? Well at least, now you do. And in case you are running to grab your lipstick to have a look through the ingredients, then I’m sorry you won’t see any “beetle/insect gut” mentioned in it.
The bright red pigment is extracted from the Cochineal female beetle by grinding them (whoph!). They were mostly used by the people of Mexico and south America as a dye fabric since 1400s and then slowly and gradually people started imitating and experimenting with them. As a result, now almost all Beauty companies have beetle extract in them.
Beers are always the best option to beat the heat and a must-have when hanging out with your gang. No conversation can start without this all time hangout consort. But who knew your drink could also be used to have a youthful looking skin. It is known to have anti-inflammatory properties which can be a boon to your dry skin and can also help in regenerating skin cells.
Whatever skin beneficial qualities it may have, there is just one question you need to ask yourself and that is would you put it on your skin when you can put it in your belly? I would rather not.
You must have heard of a lot of facials which includes eye-brow raising things and essences in them. But have you heard of bird poop facial? We are guessing not. So, now is the time to get the famous Geisha facials which apparently, includes the poop ( I could use feces but poop is a much better word, lol) of nightingale.
Also known as Uguisu no fun ( special emphasis on “no fun” please) reportedly whitens your skin, improves the texture of your skin and keeps wrinkles at bay. If you ever plan to get this facial done just make sure to check your bank balance before going ahead because the price range of this exotic facial starts from $180.
Next up is fire!!! Yes, you read that right. Burn your face down cause no face means no skin problems. Just kidding (well, partially). This dangerous facial is extremely popular in China where a alcohol soaked towel is placed on your face and then is set on fire, and quickly removing it before your skin burns down into ashes. This queer and hot treatment apparently cures cold and heals dull and tired looking skin to give you the skin you have always dreamed of.
This next thing will literally make you say “SHUT UP NO WAYS!” this checks all the boxes for the weirdest skin care product. But do you know the best thing about this? (Apart from having a perfect skin of course by using this God-given thing) that you do not have to go anywhere to get this. I know what you are thinking, no, it’s not anything off of your kitchen shelves. (hint: your body produces it) could you guess it? Well, lemme just disclose this amazing and miraculous thing; your urine.
People back in the old days (I’m talking Roman Empire days) used urine for their skin, whitening their teeth and for washing clothes. Also, you might want to re-check all of your beauty products to see if they contain something called urea, the synthetic form of urine. (Horror! Horror! Horror!)
We have been taught a great deal about bacteria in High schools, but nobody taught us that they could be used to attain glowing skin as well (that’s pretty understandable of schools, I mean they never teach us anything useful anyway). There are bazillion varieties of bacteria; some are harmful while others can be beneficial for our skin.
People take supplements of pro-biotic, which are specially made to improve your skin texture and overall radiance. The intake of these will reduce inflammation of the skin, pigmentation, clears out acne. While these bacteria which can be taken directly as probiotic supplements, another way to have them is through foods which are rich in these.
